The Green Turtle is one of five 1 BR / 1 BA floating houses* located at Stock Island Marina Village. With direct access to the Atlantic Ocean, it's the perfect way to experience Key West by water.

Stock Island is located just over the bridge from Key West, about a 15 minute ride to Duval Street. It's close enough to enjoy all the action of downtown but kick back in a more laid back atmosphere. Stock Island Marina Village is home to a colorful and friendly array of live-aboards and seasonal visitors, giving you a unique 'Old Key West' feel.

Stock Island Marina Village is a multi-use Marine Community located in historic Safe Harbor and serving live-aboard, recreational, and commercial vessels. Our office is open 7 days a week, and we have security on site after office hours so you can feel safe during your stay. Our residents are very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable of the area, and the docks are a great slice of Key West life.

Green Turtle Amenities: The Green Turtle is tastefully outfitted with everything you need during your vacation. Amenities include:

- 1 Queen Bedroom fitted with brand new 100% cotton linens, a closet, and dresser

- Full Bathroom (shower, sink, and toilet) with bath towels

About Jordan

Stock Island Marina Village is a newly developed marina, just beyond the noise and crowds of the world famous Duval Street in Key West, Florida. A pioneer on the developing forefront of the rustic Stock Island, Stock Island Marina Village is redefining the boater experience with an unparalleled level of hospitality and service. As Destination Experts and Experience Providers with guests as the highest priority, Stock Island Marina Village is the best marina in South Florida.

Jordan purchased this house boat in 2012

Why Jordan chose Key West

In 2007, the New York Times said, “The real Key West, It’s not even located on Key West proper anymore, but just over the Cow Key Channel Bridge, on the even tinier Stock Island.” Home to a diverse group of residents and business (and boats), Stock Island is a little quieter than its neighbor Key West, but still close enough to experience all Key West has to offer. Named after the livestock that used to call it home, Stock Island has a unique commercial history. The docks that currently house the Green Turtle were once lined with hundreds of fishing and shrimping vessels. With easy access to the Atlantic Ocean, proximity to Key West, and old island culture, Stock Island’s a great place to relax and experience the Florida Keys!

What makes this house boat unique

"Boatel" guests are truly guests of the Marina Village, and welcome to use any and all of the long list of first class amenities on site. This includes the complimentary shuttle to downtown Key West, two dog parks, state of the art laundry facilities, 24-hour fitness center, and much more!

Cute, safe, clean, friendly

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of Key West. Best kept secret and I hope nobody finds out. :)

Only complaint is no basic cleaning supplies to wipe off counters.

Terrific Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Second time we visited and absolutely enjoyed ourselves! We rent bicycles and ride into Key West. After an appropriate number of Margaritas either downtown or at the Sunset Lounge, we come "home" and enjoy a BBQ off our back deck. Very relaxing and the marina staff has always been helpful and courteous. The only complaint we had last year was the Internet access was far less than desirable. This year is much, much better but there is still room for improvement, which they have promised to do and we already have reservations for next year to check it out!

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at the Green Turtle. It was clean, quaint and very comfortable. We enjoyed the marina village and the food truck/bar area very much. The shuttle from the marina was so helpful.

We were disappointed the communication between us and the staff on the app was not dependable prior to our arrival. We had communicated we may arrive past 6 p.m. on check in day and we did. A male staff member on the property told us we were out of luck and would have to stay somewhere else until we could check in the next day. He refused to help and shrugged his shoulders like we were idiots for arriving late. Thankfully there were still people in the office when we arrived and they helped us check in.

Part of the reason why we were late was because we had trouble finding the office to check in. The directions sent to us were not accurate and were outdated.

We also told two different male staff member our shower wasn't draining in the Green Turtle. Both told us they'd send someone right over, but that never happened.

We would recommend any of the boatels to friends, I just think the communication needs to be improved. The app is supposed to make it easy to communicate...and it does, but communication works two ways.

It was perfect. quite, clean and everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

After traveling around constantly for 3 weeks it was fantastic to be in one place that had everything we needed. Falling asleep to the sound of the water and the small motions of the boat was very soothing. The shuttle into Key West was also very much appreciated.

We had a great time. Close to Key West... far enough away to enjoy the views and peace and quite

  • 5 of 5

Cool experience staying on a house boat. Stayed last year on pet friendly Red Grouper and this year on Green Turtle. Green Turtle is more updated. I love that easy drive to Old Town and the marina has cool vibe and fun to walk around and check out the boats.
